Ah.  GroupHeaders are wiki pages, not HTML files.  If you want to create
a GroupHeader, just create a wiki page called New.GroupHeader and place
any (wiki) text that you want to have appear at the beginning of the pages
of the group in that file.

If you're wanting to embed true HTML, and not just things that can be
created via wiki, you need to do a custom header and set the PHP
PageHeaderFmt variable.  
http://www.pmichaud.com/wiki/PmWiki/CustomHeadersAndFooters might describe
what you need to do (I just wrote this page last night so I don't know if
it's any good or not).
